Damampreet,

In all due respect, I have known a couple of people who have placed their encoder strips back on their printers and had no problems with it working again.

It is not possible for you to hook the encoder strip back to print, its kind of a Hooks on both ends which is holding it, even if you are able to put it back, it will not work,

I would refer you to a local computer tech, however I'll suggest you to get a new printer, coz tech might charge lot more than what the price of new printer

I hope this helps. There is usually a spring that holds the encoder strip on either or both ends. The have a hole that the spring is inserted in. The hole brakes and the encoder strip comes off. If you have all the parts including the spring you can modify the encoder strip by cutting a piece of strong tape to fit over where the strip was broken. I use packing tape. Poke a hole in it and reinstall encoder strip. You should also be able to buy a new strip but I am not sure. I also would go to an electronic store and find a tool to help. Buy a spring hook. It is designed to help push on and pull off springs and they only should cost a couple bucks USA. I hope this helps, Bill

SOURCE: encoder strip part c8941-80005

an encoder strip is seriously easy to replace! the strip rides thru a sensor on the ink cartridge carriage. one end hooks on to a small "hook"" on the left side of the plotter. the other end connects to a small "hook" on the encoder strip spring which connects to the right side of the plotter. Most manufacturers consider anything inside the case to be "not user replaceable". but really, its harder to keep the pictbridge bezel (cover) from falling out than it is to replace the encoder strip.
in response to jktyler.. my 2 year old did the same. if the small slots on the ends of the encoder strip are broken, then the strip is definitely damaged.

SOURCE: Replacing encoder strip om Lexmark X6170

First unplug your printer...

Lift your printer top, like you are going to change your ink cartridges.

Unplug your scanner & control panel by disconnecting the 3 ribbon cables

Then, you will need a screwdriver (philips head). remove the screws (about 4) from the inside housing cover.

After you have this cover off...

You should be able to see the sides of the cartridge. Take your encoder strip (gently) and thread it through the back of the cartriidges. Note: There are small slits on the side where you can thread.

If the encoder strip has come completely off (there should be tension if it is connected), you will have to located the right and left "pins" to attach it back to. I have a lexmark x-2500 so, mine are on the metal frame. The right end (arrow up) attaches to a metal strip which points straight towards you (a part of the metal frame) with a small notch at the right end and on the left end there's a type of "punchout" pin which is a part of the metal frame. I had to slightly bend the right end pin to the right, just enough to create some tension & keep the encoder strip from popping back off. The left end pin should already be bent out to the left.

Hopefully, this helps someone

The encoder strip is barely visible thru the top in front of the printhead, if you can see it without taking all apart, you use a Q-tip just damp with water and wipe each side as far as you can reach.

Hello i filled new ink and now its running from left to right stopps and runs again no button lets trying something .cannot reset nothing a ccepts .on button is already on then it runs stopps and runs...


Turn off the printer by unplugging it from the power outlet. Open the printer cover. Remove the cartridges. Check around the cartridge area for a transparent strip (encoder strip). The encoder strip helps in the movement of the cartridge carrier along the assembly. If the encoder strip is out of position or have gotten loose from its position, it would cause an abnormal carrier travel - slamming on the sides, alignment problem, carrier stalling, etc.
Instructions on how to reseat the encoder strip can be found from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/aSibXk.

I need an encoder strip.dell will not answer any of my email requests.know where i could get one


hi ., it s not easy to get an encoder strip that actually fits with a dell printer .
in case the strip is in good condition , and only is hanging loose ..u can try to fit it with ur own hands . on either side .,

good luck .

Encoder strip have hole. How can i take it out?


Why would you want to remove the encoder strip? The strip can be carefully cleaned in place by following the instructions here.

If you really want to remove the strip (not recommended) open the lid (with the power on). Wait for the printer noises to stop, then carefully move the carriage (with the print cartridges in it) to the left. Unplug the printer power.

The encoder is held on a metal tang at the right side and a spring on the left side. Carefully grasp the encoder near the right side and pull it to the right so it can be dislodged from the tang on the right. You will need to bend the encoder slightly to unhook the end. Once it has been loosened form the right you can then release the left tang and carefully remove the encoder.

When reinstalling the encoder reverse these steps. First thread it properly through the sensor on the back of the carriage, then connect the left end to the spring, then connect the right side.

Left side margin is fading out right side margin is printing correctly


First try to align the printer head either with software or at the printer control panel. If that one couldn't solve the problem then you may have the encoder strip dirty at left side. It is not easy to access the encoder strip, sent it to workshop.

Strip encoder 7410 hp all in one printer


Not sure about the smoking thing...to replace the encoder strip will require fairly extensive disassembly. There are no repair manuals available for any of HP's Inkjet machines because all repairs or replacements are depot repairs (u send them in). We service all of their machines. We have an extensive used part inventory where we are able to fix most all of their inkjet line. If you were to bring this machine in to our shop, the repair would cost you $65 if its only replacing the encoder strip.
